Sickly looking sedum

Posted: Today at 16:00

I planted this sedum earlier in the summer but it's looking a bit sick. Any ideas what could be wrong?

What is this shrub? I smelled it before I saw it. Really strong perfume

My runner beans(scarlet emporer) have gone a bit too stringy now and not very nice to eat.. The earlier ones were lovely. Do I leave them to die off then plant the seeds for another plant next year?

Somebody told me about skin so soft about 20 years ago. I had forgotten all about it I'll have to give it a go, must be better than smelling like fly spray all summer

Early/mid summer I get savaged. Use jungle formula spray and spray the bed too when its hot and clammy so the window is open. Still get bitten in the herbaceous borders though :-/

Do we pull up sweet peas when they are finished flowering? Also do we pull up sunflowers?

Yesterday I had a wonderful crop of tumbling toms just come ripe. I went out this morning to pick some and every ripe or nearly ripe one has vanished. What do you think? Squirrels? They have been trying to dig up bulbs and uprooted a cape daisy over the last few days
